I stayed at the El Dorado once before and enjoyed this visit as well. Good views from top floors, clean and comfortable room, a busy casino and connected to other downtown hotels and casino by walkway across streets. It's also close to the Truckee River and the river walk that's a delight. And, you're just a stone's throw from the Bowling Museum (even if you're an average or non-bowler, seeing the 100 lanes in action is worth the visit) and the National Auto Museum (with the largest remnants of the Harrah collection, I understand; the museum is layed out in chronological fashion, with excellent descriptions and some incredibly rare autos, many from my neck of the woods--Ohio.)
You can get what you pay for, with a nice variety. Good view from upper floors.
